Inserts and outlays of crowns


Inlays and onlays are an alternative to traditional "seals" when tissue damage is very significant.

If the walls of the tooth are thin, for example :as a result of previous root canal treatment, very extensive caries or if the teeth are excessively abraded over a large area and we want to increase the occlusion, the hard and durable materials from which the prosthetic expenditures are made are able to cope with high pressures teeth are exposed to everyday.

The tooth is developed at the dentist’s office, where dentist makes an impression with a special impression mass. Meanwhile in the technician's studio, technician models the missing tooth fragment (and therefore the edition) from a very hard technical composite or porcelain in a deceptively tooth-like color, individually selected at the dentist’s office. In this way tooth nodules and contact points are reconstructed, and after cementing the work we get an aesthetic and functional effect.

Inlays (less extensive) and onlays (reconstructing the entire occlusal surface, including bumps) are fixed on the tooth with adhesive using special cements.
